Empaths beware😫 LikeLiked by 4 people Reply I’m porous now (after YEARS of self-work) and therefore my friend doesn’t leave a sediment behind. So I am able to be myself with her because there’s no possibility of irritation Even a year ago, my self protection would have been aroused and I wouldn’t either have let her share or would have jumped to solve her problems (or the worst) avoid her Now I barely remember our conversations and she says I am the best friend anyone can hope to have 😳 …. so …… LikeLiked by 2 people Reply A battle between love and peace, of heart and mind.

I have a cousin who is so over-emotional, the littlest thing can make her cry and obsess for days. I know she genuinely feels distress over this little thing but having to console and reassure her EVERY TIME makes me not want to be around her. It’s energetically draining. Alternately, I know that MY self-esteem insecurity sometimes rears it’s ugly head and other people feel the need to “give me advice” to deal with it, which I don’t want. This turns into irritation and they get miffed. Badness all around. LikeLike Reply Leave a Reply to Silk Cords Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
